Two ways to help satisfy the need for more high-quality sugar maple trees (Acer saccharum Marsh.) are by establishing plantations and by supplementing natural regeneration. To gain basic knowledge of seedling requirements for this species we studied the effects of soil moisture and nutrient levels on the growth of sugar maple seedlings in their first 3 years.
